the 33x10.50 at bfgs will fit what you have, no problem.
you will need to adjust air pressure however to get them to wear even as the wheels are just a tad narrow for the tire width.
i have the tires on almost the same wheel(the earlier painted steel wagon vs chromed), no issues.
see post #32 in my 60 thread linked below.

i have run stock size BFG AT but prefer the BFG KM2 with the slight suspension lift (2.5+ inches) for overall feel and look. I buy 5 and rotate all five tires every 4k miles.

On my UZJ100 I had 5 Nitto Trail Grapplers and they still have tread at nearly 70k miles. :) Proper pressure and rotation goes a LONG WAY.

General Grabber AT2. 31x10.5

I've put 5000 miles on these, almost all highway. They've worn exceptionally well so far, comfortable ride, pretty quiet and great handling wet/dry. I haven't taken them off road much, but when I have it's been through rocky, two track dirt trails. Not Moab level but still pretty gnarly in some areas. I've been impressed with the grip and handling. For the money definitely one of the better AT's out there IMO. I am a little nervous about having only a 2 ply sidewall...but trade-offs.

I've had old syle BFG AT K/O's and felt they were ok. Not any better then my current General's. Also had a set of Goodyear DuraTrac's on a previous 4Runner. I loved them and thought they wore and rode great for how aggressive the design is until they wore to a certain point, but then they seemed to unravel pretty quickly with cupping and such, not to mention they were rather spendy.

I am running Cooper ST/Maxx 33x12.5r15.
They are a 3ply sidewall and load range C so not a huge heavy tire, but tough. I picked Coopers simply because of past experience with them.
On off road they are great (kind of a hybrid).

'86 FJ60 with 3FE, H55f, 4.11 differentials. Couldn't be happier. Tall, skinny tires work best for me - on both snow and ice and on slickrock sandstone.
